The Finals Equation

Our final home game against the Sydney Sixers is now a MUST WIN if we are to make the Big Bash Finals. So the equation is very simple:
Stars win: We're in the Finals!
Stars lose: We will miss the Finals

We'll need the support of all our Team Green members and fans at the MCG this Sunday to help get us over the line!



Car: Parking is available around the area, but we would recommend taking public transport to this fun summer night at the MCG! Yarra park is also open for parking for $10. 

Train: There are two train stations near the MCG – Jolimont and Richmond.

If you are travelling to the MCG via the Hurstbridge or Mernda lines, get off at Jolimont.

If you are travelling via the Lilydale, Alamein, Frankston, Glen Waverley, Dandenong, Pakenham, Cranbourne or Sandringham lines, you can get off at Richmond.

The MCG is a short walk from either of these stations.

Tram: There are 3 tram routes that will get you to the MCG.

  1. Route 75 (City – Vermont South)
  2. Route 48 (Docklands/City – North Balwyn)
  3. Route 70 (Docklands/City – Wattle Park)

Each of these tram stops is a short walk to the ground.

Bus: The Route 246 (Elsternwick – Clifton Hill via St Kilda) stops along Punt road, which a short walk from the ground
